I just attended the local School Strike For Climate protest (plus a conference call with Australian standards exports), and wow! It had a huge turnout. Though I haven't taken any photos, sorry.

Attended a CryptoParty organized by CCC in Hamburg today.

Today's discussion was mostly about password management. A lot of non-technical people attended and shared their password and MFA techniques and tools.

I only had SyncThing to offer since most people were already using KeePassX*.
One participant had a low-tech solution. He saves his passwords from desktop and only reads them on his mobile. Once in a month, he copies the latest kdbx file into his mobile device using a microUSB cable.
